ON STAGE // VISITING ARTIST
Companhia Urbana de Dança
Brazilian dancers fuse street, hip hop and contemporary movement into an “absolute marvel of gritty physical energy.”
(San Francisco Chronicle)
"Dynamic. Vital. Poetic. Explosive."
With electrically charged athleticism, young dancers from Rio de Janeiro’s suburbs and favelas fuse street, hip hop, samba, capoeira and contemporary dance to create intense and beautiful stories of their life experiences. Urbana presents two signature works: I. You. We... All black!, exploring the roles race and identity play in Brazilian culture, and Na Pista, reflecting the joyful influence of pop culture and sizzling social dance.
